Change Google Drive file owner

Google Drive is Google's cloud platform with which it is possible to host different types of files in the cloud to access them from anywhere and on different devices with improved security and various extra features..

 

When we upload a file to Google Drive, by default we are the owners of these files, whether they have been created or uploaded, but for control and management issues we may want to transfer ownership of any of these files or folders to another user who has a Gmail account, Google Drive allows us to transfer ownership only for these types of files:

 

Google Drive features

  • Google docs
  • Google Sheets
  • Google Presentations
  • Google drawings
  • Google My Maps
  • Folders
